Sometimes it's the little things that give you perspective in life. Take a facebook friend request for example. Two of them in the recent past have given me pause. First, I received one from a friend I had fallen out of touch with. One of those "Aw man, I gotta hang out with them sometime." Before I took the chance, she was murdered by her soon-to-be ex-husband. Just last night, I got a friend request from a high school friend, who I had lost touch with. She's in Afghanistan, for another three months at least. I hope she comes home safe.
As Lucky Durant would say, "Life's always a good idea at the time." Work, games, etc. will always be there, and can wait. Don't miss the chance to connect with someone. Plus you can always blame being late on traffic. ;) You never know if you'll miss the window. This is probably why I've pursued writing Resonics so tenaciously. Beneath the jabs at organized religion and politicians, beneath the message of "think for yourself," It's about isolated people making connections and their lives becoming better for it. Don't waste time on silly drama, grand scale of things, do they matter? Living life is the biggest paycheck, the tastiest meal, and the most epic game. Don't miss it.
